Sonic/Mega Man crossover part 5 solicit (in case, like me, you missed it)

Right about now some of you might be saying "Are you still talking about this Bechtloff?" Damn right I am because Sonic and Mega Man together is freaking awesome. I posted the solicit for part six of the Sonic/Mega Man crossover recently, but I found part five today while I was surfing around, so I figured I'd share it.

 SONIC UNIVERSE #52
The second act of the epic Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man crossover event BEGINS HERE! "When Worlds Collide" Part Five of Twelve: Sonic, Mega Man, Tails and Proto Man enter the strange world of the Skull Egg Zone. They don't receive a warm welcome, either, as the Genesis Unit and Copy Robot attack! Drs. Eggman and Wily wait in the wings with an even more sinister surprise waiting to be unleashed! You cannot miss this action-packed issue, featuring new cover art by Patrick "SPAZ" Spaziante, and choose YOUR favorite hero with the "Team Sonic" and "Team Mega Man" variant covers!

Also it seems like Archie is gonna beat the variant cover horse to death on this crossover, which I'm not all that happy about. Not a fan of variant covers in general, but either way here's a few that will be coming out.
I do like the 16-bit graphic backgrounds. Not sure what game the one behind Shadow and Bass is from but I'd recognize that Floating Island behind Knuckles and Proto Man anywhere, that's from Sonic and Knuckles. Both of these look much better than the 16 bit variants I showed in an earlier post.

    1. For a gamer you truly have no appreciation for the classics Chavez.

  2. The first variant looks to be using the opening level of Mega Man 7 as its backdrop
